Overview:

Students undertake a detailed study of human body systems through organ dissection, guided internet research, and 3-D modeling of all major organs. Labs feature data acquisition software used to monitor body functions such as blood flow, muscle reflexes, and respiratory capacity. Case studies explore the roles of biomedical professionals as they diagnose fictional patients and devise treatment plans. Research projects explore the interactions between body systems and the careers available to those who work in health-related professions. A unit on bone-based and DNA-based forensics is also included. Note that this is a course within the Project Lead The Way (PLTW) sequence of Biomedical Science courses and that a significant amount of work will be conducted online. This course may also be offered for optional college credit.
